ERO to focus where needed most

A press release from Education Minister Anne Tolley announces that the Education Review Office will review schools with good records less often and schools which aren’t performing well will be reviewed more often.

That leaves schools which are performing well to get on with teaching and provides closer monitoring and more help to those schools which have problems.

That sounds like a very sensible move to me.

I used to do evaluations of residential services for intellectually disabled people for the Ministry of Health and that’s how we worked, visiting service providers with consistent records of high standards less often and keeping a closer check and offering more help to those which had problems.
